    I've been using coconut oil on my hair . I put it on a couple of hours before I wash it and it makes my hair soft and tangle free.

    I made a brown sugar scrub and gave several of them as Christmas presents to my friends. I love the ingredients in the Homemade Coconut Salt Scrub and I want to make some for myself. I pinned it & the Coconut Sugar Scrub and would like to make that as well. Thank you for the easy tutorial and recipes.

    I think I am going to try the coconut oil lip gloss because I have everything on hand including a lipstick that is a nice color but a little too dark for me alone.
